Antichrist (Criterion) (2009)
Lars von Trier shook up the film world when he premiered Antichrist at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival. In this graphic psychodrama, a grief-stricken man and woman - a searing Willem Dafoe and Cannes best actress Charlotte Gainsbourg - retreat to a cabin deep in the woods after the accidental death of their infant son, only to find terror and violence at the hands of nature and, ultimately, each other. But this most confrontational work yet from one of contemporary cinema's most controversial artists is no mere provocation. It is a visually sublime, emotionally ravaging journey to the darkest corners of the possessed human mind; a disturbing battle of the sexes that pits rational psychology against age-old superstition; and a profoundly effective horror film.

GreenCine Daily PODCAST: After a Skype video conference with von Trier following the NYFF press screening (for further reading, see Aaron's recent interview with the Danish auteur), he shared some post-game commentary about Antichrist with freelance critic (and regular GreenCine Daily contributor) Steve Dollar, my esteemed Benten Films cohort Andrew Grant, and Hammer to Nail's own Michael Tully - who really just wants to treat von Trier to a day at an American amusement park. Dollar keeps thinking about Couples Retreat (they both take place at remote getaways called "Eden"), and Grant addresses that frequent charge of misogyny thrown at the 53-year-old filmmaker's work.
